Simple syrups are such a great way to flavor cocktails and homemade sodas and they’re super easy to make. After not being able to find Blackberry Cordial at the grocery store for a cocktail recipe, I decided to alter it a bit and make some homemade Blackberry Simple Syrup. The thing I love about simple syrup is it’s just that, simple! You can apply this recipe to make a simple syrup with almost any fruit!
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Water
- 1 1/2 cups Blackberries
- Add all ingredients into a medium pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Let mixtures simmer until sugar has dissolved and berries are tender, about 20 minutes.
- Remove pan from heat and let it cool completely.
- Strain into a bottle/jar making sure to squeeze any excess juice from the blackberries.
- Makes 10 – 12 oz.
You’re going to love the flavor of this syrup, it’s sweet but has that slightly bitter aftertaste of the blackberry. It makes a great Italian Soda and pairs well with rum and vodka, it’s also terrific over ice cream and other desserts!
